1. How old were you when you had your first child?
18.

2. How many children do you have?
One son, Joshua, who is three and a half.

3. Where does your support come from?
DH. My parents help out if we need it.

4. What has been your greatest obstacle in achieving your goals?
Money.

5. Highest level of education?
I will have my associate's degree in Criminal Justice at the end of this semester.

6. Why did you go as far as you did?
Because I was determined not to be a statistic and I know that I would have to be the primary breadwinner in my family. I also wasn't going to let the idiots who said all my dreams would be ruined when I had a kid young be right, so off to college I went.

7. What kind of programs are you in?
Like assistance programs? None, and I never have been. My family fully believes in "it takes a village", and that they would help us out when they could before we'd have to go on assistance. So we've never had to use them. There's nothing wrong with them, though, and if I didn't have my family I'm positive we would have ended up on some at some point in time.

8. How did people respond when they found you were a teen parent?
I've gotten every comment from "that really sucks" to "wow you're really mature for a teen mom" and blah blah blah. Like they are surprised I'm a good mom and have accomplished my goals in life.

9. Do you notice being treated different now?
Now that I'm older, yes. I do still get looks as most people can tell I'm still young and my son is three and a half. A lot of times when I tell people my age and my son's age I can see them doing the math in their head and it never fails to get the question of "so you were a teen mom???" Seriously people, it's not a plague or taboo or some weird thing.

10. Is the baby’s daddy involved?
Yes.

11. Have you ever had to deal with CPS? That is Child Protective Services?
No.

12. How did they treat you?
N/A

13. How does your doctor treat you?
Just fine.

14. How does your child’s doctor treat you?
Just fine too. She was my pediatrician when I was younger, so I think she may just feel a bit older now that she's my son's doctor. Really though, she takes me seriously and she knows that I do all of my research, and she respects my decisions.

15. Where did/ do you live ?
I live on my own with DH in a townhome. I lived with my mom for the first year of Joshua's life, then we moved to an apartment, and when Joshua was two and a half we bought our own home.

16. Are you married?
Yes, common-law, our wedding is set for May 21, 2011.

17. How many times?
Uh, once LOL

18. How did you meet?
Through an ex of mine.

19. Did you feel forced to get married?
No, we have waited for our own reasons.

20. What kind of work do you do?
None at the moment, but I am planning on being a police officer and am currently in the process of applying at several of the departments in my area.

21. Where did you go to high school at? Were you segregated or integrated?
I went to a private alternative high school for kids with "issues" lol. I had been going there for about two years when I got pregnant, and since it was such a small school and I knew all of the teachers very well, they understood completely and I wasn't forced to go away or drop out or anything. They actually helped me get everything together so I could graduate. I wasn't segregated from the rest of the school, everyone knew that I was pregnant. I went until I was 36 weeks, and then I had maternity leave.

22. Do you ever feel like your opinion is disregarded because you are a young parent?
Yes, on occasion sometimes it feels that way. However, it's not as much as an issue as it used to be. I've grown and matured, and I know I can back up my opinions with fact. Quite frankly if someone disregards my opinion simply because I decided to take care of my responsibilities and raise my own child when I was young, well... that reflects on them more poorly than it does on me.

23. How do you think you could be better supported?
I am very very lucky that my family has been there for me, and continue to be there for me. I am very lucky that Jason stuck around and decided to be a good father and a good husband. Honestly, I don't think I could be better supported than I am right now - my husband and my family have done so much to help me succeed and I am forever grateful. I love my life.

16

2
3. Where does your support come from?
My fiance. And I can always turn to my bestie Chelsea or my mom or grandma if I need someone to talk to besides DF.
4. What has been your greatest obstacle in achieving your goals?
Oh if I really want to be honest, its only been myself. I know I am not superwoman but I think I could do just about anything if I put my mind to it. So any lacking is my own fault.

8. How did people respond when they found you were a teen parent?
It really just depends on who it was. Some were cool, others were really hurtful.
9. Do you notice being treated different now?
Hmm. Idk. I dont care what other people think. If someone doesnt like me cuz I'm a teen mom I just smile and wish them a good day and keep going. The way I see it is, if they are going out of their way to make someone upset, then they must be pretty miserable.
